lawrence, live for us at the pentagon. we're talking 39,000 u.s. troops leaving iraq. as we heard the president say, being home for the holidays is certainly good news for folks here at home. but explain to me, though, we know that the u.s. and iraq didn't exactly see eye to eye with regard to an immunity issue because the u.s. wanted to have several thousand troops remain. >> that's right. there was a split, on both sides. there were some iraqi leaders who wanted a security of having a small u.s. force there. but ultimately it mainly came down to this issue of legal immunity. and what that means is, right now iraq and the u.s. have an agreement that american troops are not subject to iraqi law. they would fall under the uniform code of military justice right now. well, that agreement expires at the end of the year. and to set up a new agreement or to extend that agreement, iraq would have had to have agreed to grant that same immunity going forward. the iraqi politicians and parliament were not able to okay that or to agree to that and the u.s. government and by extension they co

of america that built this great country. ronald reagan, one of our greatest presidents, used to describe this nation as that shining city on a hill. but in the last several years, that shining city on a hill has slid down to the side of the hill because of the struggling economy because this administration is weakening our military. because of foggy foreign policy around the world and because of a severe deficiency of leadership, i believe that the american people are saying loud and clear, that they want to move this shining city on the hill back to the top of the hill where it belongs. and i believe that we can do that in november of 2012.
